Great food, great sevice and wonderful owners. Authentic Asian fare and great western breakfasts! Don't bypass this restaurant. Just off Kuhio highway in Kapa'a.

After our visit to Hanalei Beach and a little bit of a snorkeling-swimming with our 7 year old daughter at Lydgate Beach Park we were famished. A quick browse on Yelp and I find this spot which had very good reviews. Being Filipino the wife and I kinda got tired of eating garlic shrimp and Puka Dog while on our... More

After several trips this restaurant, I'm convinced it has Kauai's Best Breakfast! Their fresh veggie omelette is especially delicious and a healthy choice. Their fruit plates include an assortment of the Island's fresh tropical fruits but I can never resist their crispy bacon. The pancakes and waffles look delicious too. Maybe next time. The portions are generous and at a... More

Service was poor and very slow. My breakfast order was not correct but I didn't want to wait to have another one made, food was average.

We stumbled upon this wonderful little spot operated by several sisters. The food is amazing, prepared with fresh local ingredients. The sisters are so welcoming and friendly. Great spot for breakfast too!

We had Fil. eggrolls, pancit, chicken adobo, and purple sweet potato icecream. It was all delicious. Everything is made fresh, one dish at a time. So be patient if you have to wait a bit-it's totally worth it. We met the chef and she was very gracious and the lady that waited on us was very kind and friendly. Would... More

No one greeted or seated us so I took it upon myself to grab a menu and then take a seat and then someone came by to take our order. We didn't have one waiter/ waitress assigned to us, there was 2-3 people taking turns waiting on us. Place needs updating. My husband never got his coffee and had to... More

I was searching for places to go to breakfast to avoid paying $19 for the hotel buffet nearby. I tried the loco moco and I thought it was great. A little Asian cooking influence. My girl friend went a little more American traditional and had the Mac waffle and bacon which she liked. I will say the air conditioning was... More

We ate here twice during our stay: once during the week at lunch, and once on the weekend. The lunch plate is a good deal - one, two or three dishes from the steam trays over rice. On the weekends, you order a la carte. My wife had some simple grilled fish with vegetables - fresh enough and plenty big.... More

Been going to Kauai for many years and now we're mad that we hadn't tried this place before now. The Food and Prices are very good and reasonable with large portions. We will be visiting here in the future without any hesitations.
